Dominic Calvert Lewin
Arsenal have been heavily tipped with a move for Dominic Calvert Lewin who has been touted as Alexander Lacazette's replacement at Arsenal. This sensational move will be a big boost for Mikel Arteta in more ways than one especially with regards to Arsenal’s game-style. Many fans have welcomed the transfer rumors and have said that Lewin will be a good competition for Aubameyang who seems to have lost his golden touch.
Calvert Lewin will however have a huge price tag on him which will make the transfer process slower than anticipated. Also, Everton have no plans of offloading the 23-year-old as he has been included in the club’s long-term projects.
Raheem Sterling is another prolific player who has been linked to Arsenal and news about his imminent exit from the Etihad are already gathering momentum as the transfer window period nears. Sterling has been struggling to get playing this season after Pep Guardiola claimed that the 28-year-old has been underperforming. In response, Sterling said that he was ready to leave for a club that will give him more playing time.
Arsenal are among the flurry of clubs that are jostling to sign him but are moving cautiously in the transfer situation so as not to contravene FIFA rules. Sterling is yet to receive a formal offer and pre-contracts but Arsenal are definitely in the forefront to sign the England winger.
Mikel Arteta has sanctioned the contract renewal of five key players as he wants to maintain the quality of the squad in the years to come. This means that he will lose close to €10 Million in the transfer budget but it is thought to be worth the risk. Arteta is focused on maintaining a young squad and doing so means that he must not be tempted to sign other older players.
